Mini Quilt Mondays

Urban Home Goods :: mini quilt
Faith at Fresh Lemons is having a great series of Mini Quilt Mondays, all through September.
I think it's a great way to showcase a favorite technique without committing to an entire quilt. I'm also excited to get inspired by all the great mini quilts I see before we all go to Sewing Summit and take Amanda's class on Packing Mini's with Punch. So excited!

While this amazing little mini belongs to me, I definitely did not make it. I was lucky enough to receive it in the recent Urban Home Goods swap from my amazing, awesome, fantastic, thoughtful partner, Crystal.

It was meant to be, as I spied it in the Flickr pool and favorited it right away. I about had a heart attack when I opened my package and saw it was actually mine! I think she did a great job of laying out all the little squares, fussy cutting some special prints, and then adding the special quote in the center with hand embroidery. It now hangs as the showpiece in my sewing room.

Thanks Crystal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy mini-ing everyone! :)

  2. love the quote, you are one lucky partner!

  3. Hello, I've just stumbled across your little blog and have fallen in love with Seamus! We are away from home at the moment and have left our dog Jack, who I miss so much! Look forward to reading your blog and being inspired by your wonderful quilts! (I am hoping to teach myself how to quilt!!) Love Kelly x

  4. I don't know why I don't have your blog on my reader?!? Anyway, I feel so special!! I am so glad that you love your mini-quilt and I'm glad it made the "if your house is on fire..." list :) I do have to say that my two gifts from you from our swaps are spectacular too!! I'm afraid to use my pouch because I don't want it to get ruined :)


I love getting comments. Here's where you can do that! :)
